Column: Impact of Markuson’s firing yet to be seen

When any sports season concludes, one of the most interesting exercises is to look back at defining moments. Sometimes, anybody that’s watching knows one when they see it live. Other times, the moments are shrouded and only become apparent in their importance much later. Occasionally, something appears to be a season-defining moment and it turns out not to be.

Bielema responds to Markuson firing

Gut check time is coming earlier than normal this year for the Wisconsin football team (1-1 overall). After enduring their only two regular season losses last season in heartbreaking fashion during the first pair of true road games, the Badgers must now put themselves back together after a demoralizing 10-7 road defeat to Oregon State (1-0 overall) on Saturday.

Bielema focused on Oregon State

Expectations can often be deceiving. For Wisconsin football (1-0 overall, 0-0 Big Ten) and head coach Bret Bielema, the team’s high expectations proved to be a little misleading this past weekend as the Badgers pulled out a 26-21 nail biter over Northern Iowa (0-1 overall, 0-0 Missouri Valley Conference). With many projecting the preseason No. 12 Badgers to roll to their 15th consecutive season-opening win, it took a timely fourth quarter pass deflection by redshirt junior defensive lineman Ethan Hemer on a fourth-and-one to pull out the win.

2012 Big Ten Leaders Division Preview

About a year and a half ago, Big Ten officials spent hours on end attempting to find the perfect balance between the two, six-member divisions that the conference would be split into. Now though, the balance between the Leaders and Legends divisions already seems a bit unstable.
